Janette Manrara has revealed the personal change she's made because of Strictly Come Dancing 2021 winner Rose Ayling-Ellis.
Strictly star Janette hosts Strictly's It Takes Two on BBC Two alongside Rylan Clark-Neal, and she's set to host the Strictly live tour which will roam the UK between January and February.
The professional dancer, 38, praised deaf EastEnders star Rose for all the work she's done to spread awareness for the deaf community in Britain.
It comes as Rose, who won the BBC dancing show with Giovanni Pernice, has called for sign language to be awarded official legal status in Britain.
Speaking on Wednesday's One Show (January 12), Janette spoke about how British Sign Language (BSL) will be included on the Strictly tour.
She also revealed that Rose has inspired her to caption her social media posts in order to be more inclusive to deaf social media users.
When asked about how sign language will feature on the tour, Janette said: "I think it's fantastic. I think this is the wonderful thing.
"Rose really created such an awareness for the deaf community. Not just on the main show on Strictly but now even on the live tour.

"Myself, I'm trying to make sure I put captions on as much as possible with anything that I post [on social media].
She added: "That's the beauty of the show. You take someone like Rose [who] comes in and does such a fantastic job, and now on the live tour we're gonna have an interpreter at every single show to make sure that everyone feels included."
